    How are you going to monetize your accounts? Do your followers actually click on the link in your bio?

    I don't run luxury accounts but I bet they do click the link in the bios. Why? People click those "Reverse Phone Lookup" links all the time lol.

    That's the idea, i suppose, the niche doesn't really matter from this point of view. When you upload your media, you can put CTAs into the captions, so people will check out the site in your website field.

    No they dont click, and these followers are poor guys, teenagers, kids and all kind of idiots who feels comfortable to sit at the toilet and scroll down nice ships, cars and watches photos. MAIN good monetization rule is to target to a normal niche where people have money to BUY something - in this way you can sell PRODUCTS not some CRAP incentive app installs with some CRAP non existing iphone giveaway - its not a marketing or any profitable business its kids games which these days with OG+IG+Luxury accounts is on the wave but I bet very soon everything will ends.

    I do agree with you - most of the people are either teenagers or just some random people who are not even close to owning these cars, boats etc. I don't think it will end necessarily, but the people who are in this niche need to figure something out.

    Probably that "make money online" stuff works really well. I agree with others that these aren't exactly high-rollers following these accounts. People with money aren't going to look at luxury pics on Instagram when they can go look offline very easily.

    But guys... :)

    Do you necessarily need to sell physical luxury products on your site? Can't you sell virtual stuff/the dream and whatever happened to ads or other ways of monetization? That's why i said, in this regard the niche is pretty much irrelevant. If you can catch the attention of your audience, they will visit your site regardless their age or financial situation, where even if they won't buy anything, they can/will click ads, it costs nothing to them.

    Also don't forget about kids, who spend daddies money or just people with money in general. Maybe the vast majority of your audience is not them, but it's enough, if you have a few of those, they can convert well.

    They need to figure out that they will never become such big as Dan Bilzerian and that will be very forever stuck with incentive app installs until one day IG just bans they account for no reason - because if you read the TOS its not allowed to promote affiliate marketing links in the IG - so basically these all campaings are breaking TOS, and by making 30 same accounts and doing something what is breaking TOS will end soon anyways - so its not long term stuff, its not a journey to 100$/day - because even if you success your journey can be over any moment - so better to do real marketing, real e-shops and some more stable stuff not this lame shit.
    Its my opinion

    Real e-shops and more stable stuff? But you need traffic to your e-shop, no? Where do you get the traffic from? Also "e-" things are not real. A "real" e-shop is not any more real than a social media account. If you want a real thing, go and build a brick and mortar business.

    A niche is one thing, not liking it is another, but social media shouldn't be ignored, it's a cheap source of traffic and converts well. If you don't have lots of start up capital to invest in ads, social media is a viable alternative and unless with SEO for instance, with social media you can drive traffic from day 1 and keep driving it while growing as long as you want or you're allowed to do by the site. It's true that it can end anytime, but until that happens, why not exploit it?

    You can be against the luxury niche, but you can't be against instagram or social media in general from a money making aspect. A lot of stuff happening on those sites or controlled by them, ignoring them all together is kind of a luxury these days. A whole generation is growing up using those sites, they're so busy with them, that often they completely forget about the real world or that's the real world for them.

    SMM is real marketing, there's a lot more to it than just spamming your followers with PPI/CPA.

    TL;DR I think what you really wanted to say is that you support the idea of building a legit business over operating spammy/scammy social media accounts. I can agree with this easily, but why not build that legit website/idea of yours with the help of social media to be able to reach that {$100|$200|insert any amount here} a day sooner or easier?
